Know that you can’t be hundred percent sure but there isn’t any harm in giving it a try, is there? All you need to do is try different sex positions, time your sex right, and change your diet a little bit and you can increase your chancing of getting pregnant with a girl or boy in particular.

Physiology of the sperm

Before going to the tips, you should understand the physiology of the sperm so that you know why you are doing whatever you are doing. Know that semen has two different types of sperm: the female sperm and the male sperm.

Each type of sperm has its own characteristics that you could use to your advantage. The male sperm is fast swimming while the female sperm is slow. At the same time, the male sperm is short lived while the female sperm can survive for a few days. These are the two points you should remember.

If you want to have a baby boy

The boy sperm are faster but short-lived. Hence you should make sure you time your intercourse during ovulation or just a day before ovulation. The egg will be ready and boy sperm will quickly go and fertilize it while the girl sperm will be left behind.

At the same time you should try sexual positions that allow deeper penetration so that the semen is deposited closer to the egg and the boy sperm reaches faster. The typical position of the male partner being on top will help. Alongside, you can alter your diet to include alkaline foods because alkaline environment of the vagina favors the boy sperm.

Tomatoes, broccoli, wheat grass, cucumber, kale, peas, parsnips, oregano, almonds, sweet potatoes, pine nuts, and watermelons are some examples. If you employ all these methods, you can increase your chances of having a boy.

If you want to have a baby girl

The girl sperm live longer than the boy sperm. You should use this if you want to have a girl. You should have sex about three days before ovulation so that by the time ovulation occurs the boy sperm die. Remember that the boy sperm will not survive longer than 24 hours.

Thus, the girl sperm will fertilize the egg once it is released. Alongside, you should go for sexual positions that allow only shallow penetration. It might take longer for the girl sperm to swim but know that boy sperm will die on the way if the penetration is only shallow.

Thus, the girl sperm will win the race. You should also work to create an acidic environment in the vagina if you want a girl. For that you should alter your diet accordingly. Eat foods that are acidic such as citrus foods and avoid alkaline foods. If you employ all these methods, you can increase the chances of having a baby girl.

Again, you can’t be perfectly sure that you will get pregnant with a particular gender even after trying these methods. However, since these methods are safe there is no harm giving it a shot.
